Kongsberg has signed a contract with the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation (NDLO) for the continuing development of phase II of the joint strike missile (JSM) until 2013.
The Nkr543m ($101m) contract is a follow-on to a development contract worth Nkr166m ($30.8m), signed in 2009.
The JSM is a new missile that has been designed to meet operational requirements of the F-35 and to be internally carried on the aircraft.
The under development missile can also be integrated on other platforms.
Kongsberg Defence Systems president Harald Ännestad said, “Kongsberg has subcontracted a number of Norwegian companies to participate in the development and to qualify them for future development and production phases.”
The Norwegian Parliament has recently ratified the acquisition of four F-35s for 2016.
